Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-7–Bruce Coville returns to Mr. Elives' Magic Shop in this story of Juliet Dove, a shy middle school girl who suddenly finds herself the center of attention (Harcourt, 2003). While running away from some teasing girls, Juliet stumbles on the moveable magic shop, but instead of Mr. Elives, a mysterious woman is minding the shop. The woman, who turns out to be Eris, goddess of discord, offers Juliet a necklace and the trouble begins. Lovesick boys start fighting over her and camping out on her front lawn, mysterious women show up in the garden, and two talking rats appear to help her solve the mystery of the amulet. Juliet can't talk to anyone about the amulet and can't take it off. This full cast recording of the most recent title in the Magic Shop series features Coville as the narrator and 24 actors taking 29 roles. The voices are distinctive and well acted, from the children to the gods, bringing all the characters to life. Although humor abounds, the story also deals with important topics such as self-image and how we treat others. This tale of magic, myth, and personal development will hold the attention of upper elementary and middle school students.–Suzanne Libra, Huron Middle School, Northglenn, CO

From Booklist

Gr. 4-8. What could be worse for a shy middle-school girl than to be under a love spell? When Juliet runs off after hurling vicious insults at a girl who's teasing her, she finds herself in Mr. Elives' mysterious magic shop, where a strange woman presses her to take an amulet to wear around her neck. Over the next few days, Juliet starts attracting boys by the dozens. By the time she realizes the amulet is somehow responsible, she can't take it off. Two talking rats appear to help her out of her jam, and as the impossibilities pile up, she discovers that she's caught up in a story-- not just any story, but the Greek myth of Cupid and Psyche. The love god himself is trapped in the amulet, and Juliet needs to find the way to release him before the chaos gets out of hand. Coville's easy style works well in a tale that has it's share of both humor and heartache. Fans of the Magic Shop series will enjoy this latest installment. Louise Brueggeman

I started reading Bruce Coville by accident, stumbling across Goblins in the Castle with my then four-year-old. We've now read that at least 5 times, followed by the Amulet of Doom, now five Magic Shop books, Goblins on the Prowl, a unicorn story, and have no plans to stop until we run out of books! My son will turn 5 a month from today, and he just might insist on a Goblins in the Castle party (keep your fingers crossed that I figure out how to pull THAT off, with zero other little 5 year olds having read it!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Juliet Dove Queen of Love May 11 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on
You might think Juliet Dove Queen of Love is a lovey dovey book just for girls. It's actually a very interesting book.

The author is Bruce Coville. The genre is fiction adventure. The main characters are Juliet Dove, Jerome, Roxanne,and a lot of different goddesses. Juliet Dove has an amulet that she can't get off. So all these boys start following her because they become in love. You have got to read it!!

In the beginning of the story Juliet Dove goes to a magic shop and a lady gives her this amulet. She doesn't want to leave it so she puts it on. In the middle of the story Juliet gets into all of these adventures trying to find out how to get the amulet off because it starts to tighten. Read this book to find out about the rest of her adventures.

The theme of this book is never talk to strangers. This book reminds me of someone I know in the middle school because boys are always chasing after her too. This book is great for girls in grade 2-5.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Kids Review Aug. 23 2007

Format: Paperback
Juliet Dove Queen of Love is about a girl, Juliet, who wonders into a mystical magic shop hidden in a part of her town. When she walks into the shop a lady at the counter showed Juliet an amulet. Juliet fell in love with the amulet because of it beautiful color and shape. She was told do not open this amulet for its color will crack. Juliet took the amulet home. I really liked this book because Juliet takes you on multiple adventures. Juliet meets all these Goddess who help her on her journey. These adventures are very descriptive and you feel like you are on the journey with her. I recommend this book to everyone. I really enjoyed it.

4.0 out of 5 stars I think this book was great!! Oct. 25 2007

Format: Paperback
I think it was a pretty cool book but sometimes it grossed me out. I think anybody that liked adventure would like it. It was funny sometimes, and I liked the whole "Mr.Toe" thing. It made the book a lot funnier. Anyway like i said if you like adventure and can think of great pictures in your head, then I think you should read "Juliet Dove: Queen of Love".

5.0 out of 5 stars captivating to the last page! July 5 2006

Format: Paperback
I was going to write that my young daughter adores this book, but I have to admit that I love it too! She's read it cover to cover many times over, and now selects her "favorite parts" for me to read aloud at bedtime. Coville has authored a whole slew of books, but this is the one I like best, with the exception of his Shakespeare adaptations. The book is full of enjoyable characters and intriguing plot twists.
